I'm up to 17,023 words written for the Write-a-Thon, meaning that I've passed the halfway mark (my goal is 30,000). Please consider contributing; if you do, you may force me to draw more comics, and you could win stuff. (If you contribute and wish to enter the weekly draw and the draw at the end of the Write-a-Thon, do be sure to contact me at kmaaren(at)gmail(dot)com and tell me so; otherwise, your name will not go into the hat.)

There were two donors and a pledging teamthis week, but neither donor contacted me; the prize will thus go to Elisa and Athar. Congratulations, guys. In the meantime, yesterday's trivia contest was won by Tobias Battlestorm, Lord of Chiswyk, who correctly identified Darren Warren as the instigator of the second annual scandal (the plotline in question begins here).

You know, sometimes I think half you guys really want that 6.66 in there, while the other half really want it gone. The two halves are engaged in an epic battle that will inevtably end only when every participant lies dead on the ground. It's sort of a charitable-contributions take on the final battle of the Arthurian legend, or possibly a replication of the whole of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.

Panel 1: Casey has been asleep on Marie's futon. He sits up abruptly.

Casey: July eighteenth.

Panel 2: Still dressed in his pyjamas, he pounds on Marie's bedroom door.

Casey: Marie? Are you okay? Marie?

Panel 3: Casey enters the bedroom and finds Marie scrunched into a ball. He sits down and puts an arm around her.

Panel 4: Evil Marie is standing beside the bed, smirking.

Evil Marie: What happens if you poke her in the eye?

Casey: Quiet, you.

Alt-Text: Quiet, Manifestation of Someone Else's Subconscious. I may be Satan, incidentally.
